Thursday will be our last seasonable day before we begin our next extended stretch of mild weather.

Another front will move in Christmas Eve into Christmas Day that could bring some light rain to the mountains and not much else. Highs will warm back into the upper 50s to low 60s for Christmas Eve.


The Christmas holiday is trending even warmer with afternoon highs in the 60s area-wide. Rain chances will remain limited with only a few showers still possible to the west. Any holiday travel plans should be widely unaffected by weather.

Few showers in the mountains with mild weather elsewhere.
